Truck Drivers and Sleep Deprivation: a Ticking Time Bomb

When clients come to me because they have been injured in a truck accident, one of the first things we do in the investigation is look at the driver’s recent history, log books, and potential violations.

The economy has forced many hard working drivers to take on additional jobs, log incredibly long hours, and rely on energy drinks or artificial stimulants to keep them awake. This type of schedule will quickly lead to sleep deprivation, which is a top reason truck drivers fall asleep at the wheel.

Whether a driver was at his or her full capacity when an accident occurs has a lot to do with the outcome of the case. Car accidents and truck accidents do happen in Georgia for many reasons, from road conditions to faulty brakes to driver inattention.
